Sadia was so talented. She did my makeup and hair for both my engagement photos and my wedding. I can't say enough how beautiful I felt at my wedding. My girls looked just as good in our photos. Sadia knows how to bring out the inner beauty without over doing your makeup. My makeup and hair lasted my whole wedding even through a night of dancing. I can't thank her enough!!!!!

This was the most spectacular service! The “glam squad” did hair and makeup for 14 young ladies for a homecoming dance. It was the greatest day ever.

Yvonne was a pleasure to work with. She did my wedding makeup & hair. She happily woke up early and arrived at the studio at 4:30am (and it was VERY far from where she lived) to help me prepare for a morning wedding. She took care of me and my bridal party completely. She did a perfect job on my makeup and hair (I was very particular about how I wanted my makeup to look, and she pulled it off). She covered up my skin problems flawlessly. She did a beautiful hairstyle (that we had discussed previously at the makeup trial - she replicated a style based only on a few pinterest photos). Yvonne is very professional and produces perfect results QUICKLY. She did all my makeup and hair styling in one and a half hour. She's very professional, and very honest about prices. She's also fun to work with. She's very punctual as well (as mentioned, she was early for a 4:30am appointment!!!) Above all, Yvonne made me feel comfortable, and I trusted her implicitly to make me feel beautiful during my wedding. I knew after the makeup & hair trial that I didn't need to worry or think about the makeup & hair at all... and I was right!

Chose La Bella Visage Makeup for a party and I was very impressed and pleased with the results. Farah did an amazing job with my hair and makeup. She was super nice and very professional. I highly recommend her for wedding makeup or any kind of makeup needs. I am using her services again this Feb for my niece's engagement party.

Danielle is such an amazing artist.! She always goes above and beyond with her work. She is experienced in what she does and her work reflects that. She has done my makeup mutiple time, one being a more dramatic look for festive reasons and one being a much softer look for an everyday appearance. You can find her work on Instagram @danii.makeup. I would highly recommend her to friends and family!

I really loved how Audra did my makeup and the makeup of my female wedding party for my June 2017 wedding. None of us really wears makeup regularly so we very much wanted to have a natural look for the wedding. Audra did a wonderful job enhancing our features and used excellent quality products. I was very happy with the results and thought all the women looked beautiful while still looking like themselves. Even my father who *hates* a made-up look said he thought Audra did an amazing job and that I looked beautiful, natural, and my age. Audra is also very sweet and friendly. I highly recommend Audra for your wedding or event makeup!

Our experience with Raven was fantastic. Her responsiveness and her flexibility to help my daughter with last minute makeup for her homecoming dance was so appreciated. Raven's make up techniques left my daughter, as well as her friend with a flawless makeup application. Raven is very talented and a true professional. Also, not only did she do a beautiful make up for my daughter and her friend, she gave me a complimentary brow fill to help me out before an event that I was also attending. Can't say enough about Raven, loved her work and will certainly use her again for future events. She is a true gem and I look forward to working with her again.

I had Jasmene come to my home to apply makeup to my daughter, sister, Nonna and myself for my Nonna’s 95th Birthday. She arrived on time with all her supplies of makeup, false lashes and a super comfy makeup chair for clients to sit. It was a GREAT experience! She does an amazing job!! Jasmene glammed us up and we had a blast doing it! Jasmene is so sweet, fun to talk to and very personable! I can’t wait to have her do my makeup for my next event! She even gives makeup lessons and I’m looking forward to that session as well! I highly recommend Jasmene! You too will be delighted with your glamorous look!!

Olivia is a gem. She's as sweet as they come, extremely professional and talented, and she LISTENS. She did wedding makeup for myself and my bridesmaids, and I could not have been happier with my makeup on one of the most memorable days of my life. It is clear that it is very important to her that your vision is realized, and she is so great at communicating and figuring out what you want, even if you're having trouble putting it into words. When she is done, you will look and feel beautiful, and you will still look like yourself. She also went above and beyond, working hard to find an additional artist after I panicked because we had such a large group that needed makeup. You cannot go wrong with booking Olivia!

I was searching for a local makeup artist who uses natural beauty products, and could come to my home. Tessa fit the bill. She was both pleasant and professional. As a mature client, I was especially happy with her ability to make my under eye circles much less noticeable while not piling on a ton of makeup. I am learning how apply makeup, but think it it well worth the price to have an expert such as Tessa complete a look from time to time.

I hired Mari for my wedding two years ago. She did my makeup as well as a few other girls in the wedding. We had an outdoor wedding in Hawaii and it was extremely humid, so naturally I was very worried my makeup would start to smudge off. Mari knew exactly what to apply while making my makeup look flawless. She did an amazing job!! The entire bridal party was just as happy. Since then, I've hired her for two other events and have always been pleased. Shs has a way of making your makeup look natural and beautiful, or bold and exotic depending on what you're going for. Highly recommend Mari for your makeup needs! :)

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    Do I need a makeup artist for my wedding?

    There are no rules around your wedding day, and that means it’s your choice whether to have a wedding makeup artist. If you’re on the fence about hiring a wedding makeup artist, consider the pros and cons. Some women decide against a wedding makeup artist to save money. The national average cost for a wedding makeup artist is $70-$100, which is an expense some women prefer to do without. Other women just don’t love wearing makeup. Some brides have friends or family members who are talented makeup artists willing to provide their services. If you choose not to have a wedding makeup artist, be sure to do at least two trial runs of your makeup look well before the wedding day to avoid any morning-of panic.

    On the other hand, a wedding makeup artist can make the bride feel pampered and confident, giving her a flawless, fabulous look for the ceremony and reception and in wedding photos. For brides who are uncomfortable with heavy makeup, many wedding makeup artists usually excel at the natural look. Many brides consider wedding makeup part of the ritual and tradition of the ceremony, a shared experience with the entire bridal party. Ultimately your choice of whether to hire a wedding makeup artist should be based on what will make you feel most confident and happy.

    How do you choose the right makeup artist for your wedding?

    A wedding makeup artist can ensure a flawless look on your big day. Finding the perfect person isn’t all about price, though. Here are tips for choosing the right makeup artist for your wedding:

    • Research before reaching out. Wedding makeup artists should have an online presence with portfolios of their work. Find someone with an aesthetic you love.
    • Read reviews. You want a wedding makeup artist who’ll be on time, do beautiful work, and add a positive vibe to your day. Pay attention if previous clients report bad experiences with a makeup artist.
    • Consider skin tones. If your bridal party has a range of skin tones, make sure your wedding makeup artist and assistants are experienced and talented working with everyone.
    • Is your top pick available on your date? If so, put down a deposit to secure their services.
    • Confirm rates and payment. Clearly discuss prices and payment plans, and sign a detailed contract so there are no surprises on your wedding day.

    How much do wedding makeup artists cost?

    A wedding means love, celebration and tons of wedding photos. Professional wedding makeup artists have you looking your best on your big day and forever after in your wedding photos. The national average cost for a wedding makeup artist is $70-$100, although this price can increase based on your location, the extent of the makeup services and the reputation of the makeup artist. Most wedding makeup artists offer discounts to brides who book group services for their maids, mothers and flower girls at the same time. Wedding makeup artists who also do wedding hair usually offer package rates for hair and makeup combos. Here are some examples of average wedding makeup pricing:

    • Bridal makeup: $85-$125. Pricing often includes full face, eyes, lips, brows and false eyelashes. Airbrush makeup may be an additional $20 or more.
    • Bridal hair and makeup: $150-$200.
    • Bridesmaid and bridal party makeup: $50-$100 per person.
    • Bridesmaid hair and makeup: $100-$150.
    • Flower girl makeup: $25-$35.
    • Trial sessions: $60-$120, depending on the makeup artist. Some charge their full rate and others charge a partial rate for trial makeup services.
    • Hourly rates to stay on and keep makeup touched up throughout reception: $35-$75 per hour.
    • Travel fees: 50 cents to $1 per additional mile beyond a set radius — such as 50 miles.

    How much should you tip a wedding makeup artist?

    Wedding makeup artists ensure you and your bridal party are looking your best bright and early on your wedding day. Tipping a wedding makeup artist for their hard work is standard practice, and is also greatly appreciated. A tip of 15 percent to 20 percent of the total bill is appropriate. You may consider tipping extra if the makeup artist or someone on their team went above and beyond — for example, squeezing in Aunt Martha at the last second or redoing a flower girl’s hair free of charge after she dunked it in the fountain.

    A gratuity is a reflection of a job well done, so if the wedding makeup artist was late, did a shoddy job or didn’t provide all the services you negotiated, you are not required to tip. Talk with your wedding makeup artist prior to the event to ask how they prefer payment and gratuity to be handled. Can you pay by credit card the day of the event and include a tip then? Do you need to pay in cash the day of the event? Find out ahead of time how to manage payment for services so you can be prepared with cash or credit cards as needed. Even better, delegate the task of payment to someone in your bridal party so you can just enjoy your day.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
